Whether hand roasted, drum roasted, locally sourced or cafe brewed - the key to Gisborne artisan coffee making is unlocking the flavour and personality of each bean. Artisan coffee makers in Gisborne have one thing in common: producing high quality coffee in every brew for a range of coffee types.
The Far East Coffee Co. was established by Steve King and Jo Pewhairangi after discovering a gap in Gisborne’s coffee market. After relocating to their “little slice of paradise” Steve started out by helping the major out-of-town roasters with machine maintenance but soon saw that Gisborne had no local roasters to write home about. It was then that the idea of the Far East Coffee Co. was born. By combining their three Far East loves of Life, Sunshine and Coffee and using only organic green beans – The Far East Coffee Co. is a coffee roaster that showcases the very essence of a magical cup of coffee in gorgeous Gisborne.
